The Harris 100 is on the way. I'm in the process of putting the final touches on it right now, so here's a little sneak peek at the highest-ranked player at each position. I won't tell you where I ranked each player, so I'll save SOME of the suspense for the unveiling next week.
QB* Kenny Pickett*, Pitt - this decision was VERY close and remains close to me between Pickett, Matt Corral (Ole Miss) and Malik Willis (Liberty). They make up three of four consecutive spots in the Harris 100, which shows how close the battle for QB1 is.
Breece Hall, Iowa State - Smooth, fluid, excellent eyes/vision, all-around running back.
Treylon Burks, Arkansas - this decision took a LONG while to get comfortable with all the great pass-catchers in this draft class. It's not like last year when Ja'Marr Chase was so easily, in my mind, in the overall top three in the class. Burks, Chris Olave (Ohio State), Garrett Wilson (Ohio State/Austin, TX native) lead a deep class. Burks is 6-3, 230 lb., fast, physical and a complete baller.
Jalen Wydermyer, Texas A&M - This TE class is not getting much love at all and Wydermyer has some holes in his game, but he's going to be a wonderful pass catcher for a team's offense in the near future.
Evan Neal, Alabama - He's big, fast, athletic and nasty. He and Ikem Ekwonu (NC State) are the class at the position in my estimation.
Tyler Linderbaum, Iowa - He's the best center I've studied in a while.
Kenyon Green, Texas A&M - I love my Houston homeboys and Green dominated on the inside for three years in College Station after a career at Atascocita HS in Humble.
Jordan Davis, Georgia - BIG is certainly in for the defensive line this year, especially for the Charlotte, NC native. I mean, he's large, mobile, angry (in a good way) and athletic. He's not quite yet adept at rushing the passer and that'll work against him a bit.
Aidan Hutchinson, Michigan - Heisman finalist, absolute maniac off the edge, easy call.
Off the ball LB/Stack LB
Devin Lloyd, Utah - 235 lb. of speed and fury who can do ANYTHING on a football field.
Derek Stingley Jr., LSU - Traits. Elite traits. That's all we really have to go on with Stingley, the most polarizing prospect in this class.
Kyle Hamilton, Notre Dame - The #1 overall in the Harris 100 but you already knew that.
